Re: Why people hate popular films or directors?

Because no film, no matter how good, is capable of pleasing every single person who watches it. If it seems like popular films/creators are hated more, it's because the more people that know about...

Re: Make your confession to your fellow MoFos

Yeah, another thing that keeps me from getting into more TV shows is how they will more often than not feel like wastes of time. A bad movie you can be done with in a couple of hours, but a bad TV...
